Acting instructor Gary Schwartz is offering classes for adults and children, exploring the joy of performance through transformative and fun theater games.

Schwartz works to make sure everyone has a chance to play and learn, regardless of skill.

Classes meet on Friday afternoons at the SVA Youth Annex at 8032 Falls Ave., Snoqualmie, behind the House of Soul Coffee shop. Cost is $100 for eight classes for children ages 8 to 10, $125 for eight classes for youth ages 11 to 13.

Classes can be attended by parents as well, and if they decide to stay, they may be asked to play.

Schwartz offers an adult “Improvisation for Everyone” class, which meets 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Mondays at Valley Center Stage, 119 North Bend Way, North Bend. Participants can learn to overcome negative thinking, enhance creative problem-solving and relax. To register, visit www.intuitivelearningsys.org/order.phtml.
